A New York driver convicted of repeat DUI offenses faces a life sentence. Ronald Daggett Jr. will be sentenced tomorrow as a persistent felony offender for his most recent DUI (DWI in New York) conviction.
Onondaga County Judge Joseph Fahey wrote, in his decision, that Daggett’s history of DUI over the past twenty-five years “manifests a lethal disregard for the safety of others.”
Daggett could be sentenced from 15 years to life in prison. He has five previous felony convictions, four of which are for felony DUI. In 1982, he was convicted of killing another driver in a DUI crash.
